West Brom have parted company with manager Darren Moore following the Baggies 1-1 draw with Championship bottom club Ipswich Town today.
Moore was appointed at the back end of last season, with West Brom’s relegation from Premier League looking like a virtual certainty, however, he almost masterminded the most miraculous of escapes.
The former centre-back led the Baggies on an unbeaten run last April, including a famous 1-0 win over Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United, earning Moore the manager of the month award, although he was ultimately unable to save the West Midlands outfit from the drop.
He made a fine start to life in the Championship but has seen the Baggies form falter of late, winning just four league games in 2019, with today’s 1-1 draw with bottom side Ipswich leaving them nine points off the automatic promotion places.
The club have now announced that the 44-year-old has been relieved of his duties, citing the clubs ‘disappointing run of results as the primary reason.
“Albion have tonight parted company with the Club’s Head Coach Darren Moore,” a statement on the club website reads.
“Assistants Graeme Jones and Wayne Jacobs have also been relieved of their duties.
“The Club took the decision after a disappointing run of results which has seen Albion lose ground in the challenge for automatic promotion from the Sky Bet Championship.
“Albion have won just four of their last 12 league games and suffered defeats by fellow promotion contenders.”
